It’s estimated that nearly 20% of adults suffer from the adverse effects of bruxism; clenching and grinding of the teeth. For the most part, people generally grind and clench their teeth because of stress. Bruxing not only results in irreparable damage of the teeth, but can also cause the muscles in your face and neck to become sore.
At Allen Institute of Dentistry, the dentist can fit you with nightguards. Nightguards are plastic mouthpieces designed to reduce the harmful effects of bruxism.
